Job Description

An innovative Clinical Supply Chain Manager is needed to join the world’s leading clinical supply service provider, at their state-of-the-art facility in Horsham, West Sussex. Some flexibility is also available for the right candidate to work partially from home.

This role will suit an experienced Clinical Supply professional or a person with related skills in IxRS, clinical trial services, clinical pharmacy, clinical logistical services etc. You will be paid a generous salary (up to £45k) and benefits.

The Company
Our client focuses on managing the packaging, labelling and distribution requirements of clinical trials across the world. As clinical trials have increasingly complex supply chains, the organisation’s integrated solutions – and partnership businesses - provide the sophistication to meet these challenges with the flexibility to integrate into clients’ own processes and procedures. This organisation is the global market leader in CTS solutions, with operations in the US, UK, Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific which are backed by a global distribution infrastructure.

The Role
The Clinical Supply Chain Manager’s role focuses on the interpretation of clinical protocols and clients’ operating procedures that will be successfully converted into robust supply chain solutions. Working directly with key stakeholders, often at programme or account-wide level, and based on accurate forecasting, you will develop innovative processes and procedures. These will ensure clinical stock availability through scheduling, operational coordination and risk management. You will have the ability to pull together cross-functional teams for study management activities and to ensure full regulatory compliance. Internal contacts will include the Client Services Project Management team while externally they will include CROs, IVR/IWR providers, client clinical supply teams and client clinical management teams.

This position offers a highly competitive salary (up to £45k depending on experience) plus contributory pension scheme, annual bonus scheme and private health cover.

The successful candidate will have a full understanding of Project Management and Supply Chain Management relative to Clinical Supplies. This will ideally include a knowledge of all trial phases and how protocols translate into the entire supply chain plan. Candidates are welcome from both service provider and sponsor/pharmaceutical company environments. This role could suit a Clinical Supplies professional or a person with related skills in IxRS, clinical pharmacy, clinical trial services, clinical logistical services etc. 

All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence and a confidential conversation can be arranged with the Recruiter on request.
